Chimaira vocalist Mark Hunter has unveiled that the group will be losing their guitarists Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries. A loss for them but we are hopefully will recover with two more greats like these guys. UTG will fill you in on the latest happenings of Chimaira soon.

Hunter had this to say about Rob and Matt’s departure:
“unfortunately, as much fun as we were having, behind the scenes we were aware of some unfortunate realities that prevented us from ‘living the dream’ and having the time of our lives. We had another bomb to drop on the fans.”

“huge blow but there were no hard feelings. We understand that life invades art, everything runs its course, and we have to take different paths. We respect their decision and wish them only the best. We made heavy metal history together and that is all that matters at the end of the day. ‘Chimaira Christmas 12’ will be their last show, and we’ve been preparing to make it one that you’ll never forget.”

“I would personally like to thank Rob and Matt for all of their hard work, years of service to Chimaira, amazing songs, and for their friendship,” says Hunter, who I believe is now the last founding member still in the band. “Together we built something special that will remain for generations to come. I’m looking forward to spending another five weeks on the road with two of the best (and criminally underrated) guitarists in modern metal.”
